What’s leaving Amazon Prime Video UK in April / May 2022?
James R | On 21, Apr 2022
As the UK continues to navigate its way through the Covid-19 pandemic, Amazon Prime Video’s sizeable library of movies and TV shows is a useful resource for keeping entertained indoors. But before you start bingeing through the line-up, don’t miss out on catching up with some old and new gems before their rights expire.
This is your last chance to stream the following with Amazon Prime UK:
The Rock – 21st April
Nicolas Cage and Sean Connery are a hugely entertaining double-act in Michael Bay’s definitive 90s actioner.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show – 21st April
“Let’s do the Time Warp again..”
Searching – 24th April
John Cho is superb in this gripping thriller about a father searching for his missing daughter.
Runaway Bride – 24th April
Julia Roberts and Richard Gere reunite for this charming tale of a reporter who profiles a handywoman who keeps leaving guys at the altar – no prizes for guessing what happens.
Unbreakable – 25th April
Shyamalan’s masterpiece is a powerful call to look past the ordinary and believe in the extraordinary.
Sunshine – 26th April
Danny Boyle does sci-fi with this scorchingly good thriller about a bunch of scientists (including Chris Evans, Cillian Murphy, Michelle Yeoh and Benedict Wong) travelling to restart the sun after it begins to fade.
Starship Troopers – 26th April
“Would you like to know more?”
War Horse – 29th April
In Spielberg’s sentimental tale of a boy and his horse, the going’s good to soft. Mostly soft.
William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet – 30th April
Baz Luhrmann’s update of Shakespeare’s iconic tragedy, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes is a jaw-dropping, open-hearted masterpiece.
Notting Hill – 1st May
Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts are irresistible in this peak Richard Curtis rom-com.
Geostorm – 1st May
Gerard Butler takes on the weather in this climate change-inspired disaster movie.
The Twilight Saga – 2nd May
Don’t miss your chance to binge through the teen vampire franchise.
The Impossible – 3rd May
Juan Antonio Bayona’s retelling of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami is a gruelling, harrowing, moving experience.
Ad Astra – 10th May
Brad Pitt is magnificent in James Gray’s profound and visually sumptuous sci-fi.
Rocky – 11th May
Don’t miss your chance to binge through the whole of Sly Stallone’s seminal boxing saga.
Now You See Me – 11th May
This magical thriller is hugely entertaining to watch as long as you don’t look too closely. The sequel also departs on the same day.
Belle – 15th May
Gugu Mbatha-Raw delivers an incredible performance in this remarkable, important period drama.
Borat – 16th May
Enjoyed the satirical sequel? Don’t miss Sacha Baron Cohen’s original outing for his fictitious Kazakhstani journalist.
Spotlight – 16th May
This retelling of the Boston Globe’s 2011 investigation into abuse in the Catholic Church is urgent, gripping filmmaking.
Sister Act – 18th May
Whoopi Goldberg is on iconic form in this wonderful, winning musical comedy – and the sequel, which also departs on the same day, is no less charming.
The Descendants – 18th May
A brilliantly downbeat turn from George Clooney grounds this bittersweet but predictable comedy-drama.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – 21st May
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy has something of a bad reputation among some sci-fi fans, but Garth Jennings’ big screen adaptation of Douglas Adams’ world hits the tone bang on the head. Martin Freeman’s Arthur Dent wears a dressing gown with everyman charm, Zooey Deschanel’s Trillian is a manic pixie given unexpected depth, while Sam Rockwell does surprisingly well as arrogant two-headed Zaphod Beeblebrox. Add in Alan Rickman as the suicidal android Marvin and you have a laugh-out-loud adventure with visual effects to match its offbeat humour.
